Mermaid or Whale

Sent to me today by one of my sisters. According to this I am a genius - you will understand when you get to the end - LOL. I agree with the sentiments, and I love that whoever wrote this can laugh at themselves too.

Recently a poster featuring a young, thin and tanned woman appeared in the window of a gym
It said, "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"

A middle-age woman, whose physical characteristics did not match those of the woman on the poster, responded publicly to the question posed by the gym.

To Whom It May Concern

Whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, sea lions, curious humans)
They have an active sex life, get pregnant and have adorable baby whales.
They have a wonderful time with dolphins stuffing themselves with shrimp.
They play and swim in the sea, seeking wonderful places like Patagonia, the Bering Sea and the coral reefs of Polynesia ...
Whales are wonderful singers and have recorded CDs.
They are incredible creatures and virtually have no predators other than humans.
They are loved, protected and admired by almost everyone in the world.

Mermaids don't exist.
If they did exist, they would be lining up outside the officer of Argentinean psychoanalysts due to identity crisis. Fish or human?
They don't have a sex life because they kill men who get too close to them, not to mention how could they have sex?
Just look at them, where is IT?
Therefore they don't have kids either.
Not to mention, who wants to get close to a girl who smells like a fish store?

The choice is perfectly clear to me: I want to be a whale.

p.s. We are in an age where the media puts into our heads the idea that only skinny people are beautiful, but I prefer to enjoy an ice cream with my kids, a good dinner with a man who makes me shiver, and a piece of chocolate with my friends.

With time, we gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies.
So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy.

Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think "Good grief, look how smart I am!"


  1. I doubt I have seen all those rings and I love the box. Where did you buy that? P.S. Your nails look lovely.

  2. Sorry, I don't know why the comment re the rings came through here but it did.
    re Mermaid/Whale...have seen it before and always keep it in mind when I hop on the scales.
